Arbogast® Jitterbugs® - Jointed
Sale starting at:
Clearance starting at:
Just reel an Arbogast Jitterbug in and let it wag back and forth with a deep, gurgling rhythm that bass can't ignore. The bigger lunkers often follow the Jitterbug for half a retrieve until they can't resist it anymore and attack. The Jointed Jitterbug's tail packs extra shimmy.

Rated 3 out of 5 by jbmw002 Have Gone Cheaper
I love this and the regular jitterbug. They are the best top water lures out there. However, I hate that they went to plastic instead of wood. The lure just feels cheaper now. I wish they didn't make cost cutting decisions like this. I would rather pay extra for the better product. Still the best twilight lure on the market.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ringo007 a classic bait.
I love fishing this topwater, the Bass come up and slam it'. I didn't give it 5 stars because the original hooks are terrible. I change them to a shorter shank for better hookups that the fish have a harder time throwing.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Remlap Not what they used to be
This has nothing to do with BPS, but the Arbogast Jitterbugs used to be bulletproof and sturdy. While they still remain my lure of choice for night time fishing, they are made so cheaply now I think I'm going to make my own. Its sad how flimsy they are. They used to be solid wood and hand crafted...now just cheap plastic.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Jig4Bass Worth a try
This cousin to the non-jointed bug puts out plenty of action and has the "sit-down" in the water feature unlike the single section bait. The flexible hook hangers help keep bass buttoned better, too, but somehow I find I get more strikes on the original.
